Job Description

STEEL ERECTION STRUCTURAL -Have you been wondering about how you can put your metallurgy knowledge to practical use? Or looking for an outlet for your passion of melting metals? We need Apprentice Welders to lend their highly sought-after skills to our clients. As an Apprentice Welder, you will assist Journeyman welders by using hand-welding, flame-cutting, hand-soldering, or brazing equipment to weld or join metal components. Welders pick the materials to join or cut and arrange them in an appropriate configuration before following a specific design or blueprint to build the desired product. Sometimes you will have to perform specific melting methods on materials like lead bars to complete a project. Welders are also in charge of making structural repairs, ensuring the integrity of the welding equipment is intact, and smoothing and polishing the metal surfaces once welded together. As this position annually generates more demand than supply, we can say without a hitch that we need your talents. Are you ready to lend them to us?
